This post is completely off topic but I couldn't contain myself from telling you about our most exciting news! We welcomed a new addition to our family last weekend, her name is Lisa. I have always loved chickens. Lisa was given to us by our dear friend, Winston. He has a beautiful chicken coop for eleven hens. The hens are all paired up by breed except for Lisa. Apparently, chickens are just like high school kids, if you are different, you are likely to be made fun of. The other chickens rejected her. They would peck her until she bled. Winston had to separate her from the flock by putting her in a cage, much smaller than the chicken coop (of course). This broke our hearts and Winston's. We live in a suburbia home, with a small garden in the back. We have frequent visits from possums and raccoons (not to mention Larry, a mean neighborhood cat). Despite these issues, we took her home anyway and things haven't been the same since. At night we put her in her cage and cover it with a tarp to protect her from prying eyes and sharp claws. In time, my boyfriend will build her a little cozy home. We just love her! She's doing great. Even Sami, our old and sweet cat, likes her too. They find each other very amusing to watch.
Within hours at her new home, she made a little nest for herself and laid an egg, not just any egg, a green egg!
Here she is, frolicking about our garden.
